Mr McGready said: “No matter what the costume, I always look forward to joining the cast for this special occasion. We are proud to support such a talented team in their one-of-a-kind Christmas performances”.

This year’s show, The Ladykillers of Humber Doucy Lane, adds an Eastern Angles spin to the classic 1950s Ealing comedy, The Ladykillers.
